    Multiversity Comics - David Henderson May 29, 2014

    So, for a Spider-Man anthology that re-tells not only Spider-Man's origins, but the origins of some of his classic villains, somehow Joe Caramagna and the art team pulled off the impossible and made it work. Not only did they make it work, but they made these some of the best examples of re-tellings of these stories. That's largely due to the fact that Caramagna was able to weave a thematic narrative throughout each story that echoed the arc Peter took in early Stan Lee-written stories as he comes to terms with Uncle Ben's death. That positions this to be the perfect companion piece to some of the stuff Dan Slott is doing as anyone who (somehow) didn't know of the comic origin of Spider-Man could be easily pointed here before seguing in ‘Learn To Crawl' or even the new “Amazing Spider-Man” series.

    If you're looking for an all-ages-oriented Spider-Man comic that offers a lot of bang for the buck and can also serve as a primer for Spidey's Silver Age history, you could do a lot worse than this Giant-Size special. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin May 30, 2014

    Giant-Size Spider-Man #1 is an entry that doesn't need to be bought by devoted followers. It's not terrible but rather mediocre and ultimately forgettable as it needlessly fails to earn arecommendation from me. Read Full Review
